There is something extra soothing about water, isn’t there? Water features are meant to bring good luck in feng shui but only if they are done properly. There are good placements for fountains and there are not-so-good ones. Balance and scale and direction of water flow are also important. Ponds with koi fish are popular, too. I like the idea of river rocks placed at the bottom of a pool like the one shown here from the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond. Sound also comes into play: whether it’s a steady trickle of water or a more substantial waterfall effect, all have feng shui impact.
